Define what mental toughness means for you.
For you, it might be…
-Being consistent to some work which you need to do daily.
-Going one month without missing a workout.
It’s about doing the things you know you’re supposed to do on a more consistent basis. It’s about your dedication to daily practice and your ability to stick to a schedule.
Mentally tough people don’t have to be more courageous, more talented, or more intelligent — just more consistent. Thats the point, mentally tough people just have this one specialty that they are consistent, they do not distracted easily. And for a moment if they get distracted they do have a ability to overcome these distractions soon, hence that’s the best part of being mentally tough.
It isn’t about getting an incredible dose of inspiration or courage.
It’s about building the daily habits that allow you to stick to a schedule and overcome challenges and distractions over and over again.
Mentally tough athletes are more consistent than others. They don’t miss workouts. They don’t miss assignments. They always have their teammates back.
Mentally tough artists, writers, and employees deliver on a more consistent basis than most. They work on a schedule, not just when they feel motivated. They approach their work like a pro, not an amateur. They do the most important thing first and don’t shirk responsibilities.
